All unique monster locations in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

All Unique Monsters in the game and where to find them

Screenshot by Gamepur

Unique Monsters are powerful enemies in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 that are easily identifiable by the red icons on the side of their name/level. Their levels can vary wildly and don’t have to match the average enemy level of the area you are in. These monsters can be more powerful than they appear, and you will need proper preparation before you take them on.

Defeating these monsters provides great rewards in the form of rare accessories, materials, and moves for the Soulhacker class. You will meet a number of Unique Monsters throughout your journey, but some of these monsters require you to go out of your way before they appear.

Here are all the Unique Monster locations in Aionios, organized by region in alphabetical order. You will see their name, their level, their location, any requirements they need to appear, and the Soulhacker move/skill you gain upon defeating them.
